Case 3:06-cv-00672-VRW Document 17 Filed 03/31/2006 Page 2 of 6

1 This matter came on for hearing before the Court on Plaintiffs’ motion for a preliminary

2 injunction. Having given full consideration to all of Plaintiffs’ papers, evidence, and the relevant

3 authorities, all of Defendants’ responses thereto, and the oral presentations of counsel, and good

4 cause appearing, in accordance with Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 65(b), it is HEREBY

5 ORDERED as follows:

6 1. Plaintiffs’ motion for preliminary injunction is GRANTED. Plaintiffs have

7 demonstrated: (i) a likelihood of success on the merits of their Title III and Fourth Amendment

8 claims, (ii) irreparable harm if they are not granted a preliminary injunction, (iii) the balance of

9 hardships tipping in their favor, (iv) and the public interest favors the interim relief sought in

10 their application, sufficient to merit and constitute good cause for the issuance of a Preliminary

11 Injunction Order as more particularly described herein.

12 2. Defendants, their officers, agents, servants, employees, attorneys, parent,

13 subsidiary or related entity, any person acting for, with, by, through or under them, and any

14 person in active concert or participation with them having actual notice of this Order by personal

15 service or otherwise, and each of them, shall be immediately preliminarily enjoined and

16 restrained during the pendency of this action from facilitating the interception, use, or disclosure

17 of its customers’ communications by or to the United States Government except pursuant to a

18 court order or a legally valid certification by the Attorney General of the United States for short-

19 term, emergency circumstances and lasting no longer than 48 or 72 hours as specifically

20 provided in 18 U.S.C. §2511(2)(a)(ii) (permitting emergency surveillance under Title III and

21 FISA), 18 U.S.C. §2518(7) (Title III emergency surveillance for no more than 48 hours), and 50

22 U.S.C. §1805(f) (FISA emergency surveillance for no more than 72 hours).

23 3. Defendants shall file with the Court and serve upon Plaintiff’s counsel within

24 thirty days of the entry of this Order of Preliminary Injunction an affidavit or declaration

25 attesting to and detailing Defendants’ compliance with it.

26 4. No bond is required. The balance of hardships favors Plaintiffs, who are

27 experiencing harm to fundamental rights guaranteed them by the Constitution, while Defendants
